Weather update for the work week

South central Kentucky is currently sitting under overcast skies with a southerly wind and temperatures around the mid-40s. Temperatures will be on the rise as winds from the south bring warm and moist air into the area. High temperatures for Monday could be in the upper 50s before a cold front moves through the region late Monday afternoon. The WPC Surface Analysis shows the cold front just west of Kentucky around 6pm Monday evening.

This cold front will bring temperatures back to near-average for the remainder of the week. A high pressure system will slowly make its way across the U.S. over the next few days. Skies will remain overcast until Wednesday, where we will likely see a much needed break in the clouds. There is a slight chance from precipitation Wednesday night into Thursday morning due a shortwave disturbance in the lower levels. Depending on the track of this system, we could see some snow flurries as it moves through since temperatures will be in the low 30s. Composite reflectivity at midnight on Wednesday shows this scattered precipitation across the area.

We won't see our next chance for rain until well into the weekend. Check back for a post later in the week detailing the weekend forecast!
